Reviews

From the Reviews: "It is a pleasure to strongly recommend the text to the intended audience.The writing style is effective, with a relatively gentle but accurate mathematicalcoverage and a wealth of R code in the sde package." (Thomas L. Burr, Technometrics, V51, N3) "The book focuses on simulation techniques and parameter estimation for SDEs. With the examples is included a detailed program code in R.It is written in a way so that it is suitable for (1) the beginner who meets stochastic differential equations (SDEs) for the first time and needs to do simulation or estimation and (2) the advanced reader who wants to know about new directions on numerics or inference and already knows the standard theory... There is also an interesting small chapter on miscellaneous topics which contains the Akaike information criterion, non-parametric estimation and change-point estimation. Essentially all examples are complemented by program codes in R. The last chapter focuses on aspects of the language that are used throughout the book. Generally the codes are, without much effort, translatable into other languages." (Roger Pettersson, American Mathematical Society 2009, MR2410254 (Review) 60H10 (62F10 65C30)) "This book succeeds at giving an overview of a complicated topic through a mix of simplified theory and examples, while pointing the reader in the right direction for more information... This would be a good introductory or reference text for a graduate level course, where the instructor,s knowledge extends substantially beyond the book... data examples are abundant and give the book the feeling of being practical while showcasing when methods succeed and fail." (Dave Cambell, Biometrics, 65, 326-339, March 2009) "Overall, this is a good book that fills in several gaps. In addition to collecting and summarizing an enormous quantity of theory, it introduces some novel techniques for inference. Statisticians and mathemeticians who work with time series should find a place on their shelves for this book." (Journal of Statistical Software - Book Reviews) "Diffusion processes, described by stochastic differential equations, are extensively applied in many areas of scientific research. There are many books of the subject with emphasis on either theory of applications. However, there is not much literature available on practical implementation of these models. Therefore, this book is welcome and helps fill a gap. ... the thorough coverage of univariate models provided by the book is also useful. These models are building blocks for larger models, and it is good to have a handy reference to their properties, such as parameter restrictions and stationary distributions." (Arto Luoma, (International Statistical Review, 2009, 77, 1) "In summary, this book is indeed quite unique: it gives a concise methodological survey with strong focus on applications and provides many ready-to-use recipes. The theory is always illustrated with detailed examples incorporating various parametric diffusion models. This text is a recommended acquisition for practitioners both in the industry and in applied disciplines of academia." (Marco Frei, ETH Zurich, JASA March2010, v105(489) "To summarize, this book fills several gaps in the literature, summarizing the theory of sto- chastic processes and introducing some new estimation techniques. The main strength of the book is the breadth of its scope. It covers the basic theory of the stochastic processes, appli- cations, an implementation in concrete com- puter codes. An empirical economist would find Chapter 3 most important, while for a theorist it will be useful to concentrate on Chapter 1." (Suren Basov, La Trobe University, Economic Records, v86(272), March 2010) "...This book is indeed quite unique; it gives a concise methodological survey with strong focus on applications and provides many ready-to- use recipes. The theory is always illustrated with detailed examples incorporating various parametric diffusion models. This text is a recommended acquisition for practitioners both in the industry and in applied disciplines of academia." (Journal of the American Statistical Association, Vol. 105, No. 489)
